‘If You ♥ England, Don’t Shop at F&M’, Say PETA Protesters on St George’s Day

Fortnum & Mason’s carefully cultivated image – of a shop steeped in English tradition – took a major knock yesterday, thanks to a wave of PETA supporters who paid the store a surprise St George’s Day visit! Whether handing out fliers or posing almost naked and bodypainted with St George’s flags, activists were determined to remind the company and its customer that the sale of foie gras is positively un-English.

Lacey Banghard: Too Much Sex Can Be Deadly

Lacey Banghard might have been voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house only a few days ago, but she’s already teamed up with PETA to stand up for what she believes in – safe sex for cats and dogs!

The curvaceous model took to the streets of London to promote animal sterilisation. As a compassionate person, Lacey is understandably concerned about the massive problem of cat and dog homelessness in the UK and knows that the only solution is animal birth control.

 

“If cats and dogs could rubber up, tens … Read more.

The Hobbit: PETA’s ‘Horses’ Crash the Premiere

Fans were reminded of the deaths of numerous animals during the production of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as PETA supporters converged outside the ODEON Cinema in Leicester Square at the premiere. In all, five horses, 12 chickens, a pony and several goats and sheep were allegedly maimed or killed, and PETA wants to encourage moviegoers to let Peter Jackson know that using live animals – and letting them die – is unacceptable in the age of breathtaking special effects.

There is no “back again” for the animals who suffered and … Read more.

PETA Volunteer Inspires People Globally to Stand Up for Animals

Today is International Volunteer Day. PETA owes its success to those who selflessly dedicate their time and resources to helping animals. We have so many volunteers doing wonderful work, and to celebrate, today we’re recognising one supporter with PETA’s Volunteerism Award.

Aylesbury College graduate Robert Crussell believes that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment or abuse in any other way – which also happens to be our founding principle. And Robert doesn’t just talk about his beliefs – he acts on them, publicly and often. He’s … Read more.

Who’s on Your Plate?

To mark the World Week for the Abolition of Meat, a PETA supporter in Glasgow stripped down with the aim of encouraging passersby to have compassion for the billions of animals who are abused and killed by the meat, egg, dairy and fishing industries every year.

Posing on a giant plate – complete with to-scale cutlery, chips, peas and a serving of ketchup, her banner read, “Try to Relate to Who’s on Your Plate. Go Vegan”.

Besides causing animals to suffer on a massive scale, consumption of meat and other animal … Read more.

Giant ‘Goose’ Gatecrashes Fortnum & Mason’s Diamond Jubilee Street Party

A giant “goose” led a protest against Fortnum & Mason at the store’s street party celebration marking The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee today. PETA members – making goose sounds and holding signs – added to the festivities. They were pointing out that despite being provided with evidence that ducks and geese used in foie gras production are grotesquely abused, Fortnum & Mason refuses to stop selling the product.

Birds raised for foie gras are force-fed up to 2 kilograms of grain and fat every day via a pipe inserted down their throats. That’s … Read more.

‘Skinned’ People Descend On Hermès Leather Exhibition

Body-painted to resemble “bloodied, skinned” people, three models representing PETA converged outside the opening of the “Hermès Leather Forever” exhibition at the Royal Academy of the Arts today. They held signs reading, “Hermès, Bag Cruelty: Ditch Leather”, while other PETA members handed out leaflets to passers-by and people attending the event. In addition to causing cows to suffer and die, the leather industry is toxic to the environment and a threat to human health. Unlike more progressive companies, Hermès also uses fur.

Sexiest Vegetarian Bathes in ‘Blood’ to Protest Deadly Cosmetics Tests on Animals

Sitting in a bathtub filled with “blood” with a banner that reads, “Stop the Bloodbath, Dr Cable: Support EU’s Cosmetics Testing Ban”, Victoria Eisermann – ex-Playboy model and female winner of PETA’s 2007 Sexiest European Vegetarian contest – was in full view of the Houses of Parliament today.

The European Commission – under pressure from the cosmetics industry – is considering postponing the 2013 deadline for banning the sale of cosmetics containing ingredients tested on animals, and Dr Vince Cable, UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, has refused … Read more.

‘Pig Prisoners’ Protest Foston Factory Farm, ‘Guantanamo Bay for Pigs’

Costumed “pigs” in orange jumpsuits – shackled and covered with black hoods – stood beneath a banner that reads, “Don’t Make Foston a Guantanamo Bay for Pigs”. They lead PETA members in a protest against Midland Pig Producers’ (MPP) plan to build a US-style factory farm in Foston. If approved, this industrial nightmare would imprison up to 25,000 pigs at a time, who would never see sunlight or breathe fresh air until they were loaded into lorries for transport to an abattoir at a rate of 1,000 animals a week.

Bubbly Pro-Vegan PETA Action Marks World Water Day

Nearly nude vegan PETA supporters Marika Rea and Helaine Murrin sat leisurely in a bubbly bath holding signs reading, “50 Baths = 1 Steak. Clean Your Conscience: Go Vegan”, in Dublin today in the run-up to World Water Day. The bathing beauties let passers-by know that it takes the water equivalent to 50 baths to produce one steak.

“Not only is the meat industry cruel, it also wastes huge amounts of water and damages the planet”, says bathing beauty Helaine. “You can’t eat meat and be an environmentalist.”
